You are trapped inside the Octagon, a megaplex of hallways, platforms, and gaps—and the clock is running. Can you survive the mad race through this trippy 8-sided tunnel?
"Fast, tough game that doesn't give a darn about your feelings. Go for it!" - 4/5 Cult of Mac
"If you love these impossible reflex games, then you don't want to miss out on Octagon." - 5/5 AppAdvice
"Octagon is somewhat like Temple Run, but on steroids and with much cooler music and graphics." - iMore
Octagon is a minimal arcade game where you have to move fast or be left behind. As the floor moves beneath you, spin your world around to dodge speed bumps. Flip upside-down to avoid holes, surf on top of the Octagon—whatever you can do to survive. An energizing soundtrack by Sqeepo and psychedelic color bursts keep you in the zone on your race to the finish. But with each round over after just 60 seconds, only super-fast reflexes will beat this very challenging game.
- Unlimited number of randomly generated levels
- Dynamic procedural graphics with a minimalistic iOS7 look
- Original soundtrack by Sqeepo
- iCloud syncing (with iOS version too)
- Pure challenge with no in-app purchases or cheats

Killer game! - One more proof that it’s still possible to come up with simple yet original and totally addictive game concepts. I caught myself thinking, as I hit ‘left' instead of ‘up’ once again, that Octagon would be perfect for use in neurophysiology labs, to study the brain’s learning mechanisms. As you go through each level, in the first part, which you are familiar with, your memory circuits override your reflexes, and after you pass your previous best, it’s pure reflexes and interaction of visual and motor systems… I mean, that’s obviously true of many games, but Octagon has such clean graphics and so few distractions from the core game mechanic that these sort of interactions in the brain should be pretty isolated and easy to study. Well, maybe - speaking just as a reflecting monkey here, not as a neurophysiologist... On a different note, music-wise I like the anthem-y first track, but the poppier second and third tracks don’t really do it for me in this game. That’s just me though.
STILL crashes - I used to play this game all the time up til the last two updates. Keeps crashing on me. This most recent time, like the reviewer said before me, it took a few more seconds to crash than it normally would.. so there’s a minor improvement there. I hope they find out what the problem is. Its sad because it’s such a gorgeous puzzle game.

Alsome game to play - I love playing this game on my iMac a lot and once I start playing it I don’t want to stop playing. Sometimes I willl hit the wrong arrow key and make me crash which is never a good thing for me but in the end I love the colors, music, and the design of the levels that I play. Some of the levels get hard for me which drives me bonkers everytime get on to play it. One thing I wish for the ball to change colors just like the platform. OCTAGON is the first game on my iMac that I downloaded to play and try out which is a good thing I got this game.
Great Game but... - Game is great, but after getting into the 80’s-100’s I feel like the speed never increases. I’m on level 500 now and havent felt a change in speed in forever.. Wish you could make it go faster! Overall a great time passer.
Slightly Buggy - I really do adore this game, with the nice visuals and graphics, effortlessly paired with the music. However, when I go to open the game, it crashes and I cannot play it.
Refreshingly simple and ad free. - OMG! A game that is free with zero ads and actual playability. Its a great time waster, and I love being able to randomize a level that I am stuck on. The level of difficulty is just right- you feel amazing when you beat a level, and you get better as you play. I really like the ability to play different game modes, and I think adding some missions as a way of gaining different designs for the octagon and the tracks would add more variety to the game. Overall, this game is a treat and I really love it. Much better than any mobile game in this style- *Cough Cough Ketchapp* Thank you for the great game, and I hope to see more content and updates added soon!
Great game!!! - Great game!!! I feel obliged to write this review with a rating of 5 stars! The overall design is very simple and easy to understand, yet it is very fun and addicting, and feels very rewarding when you suceed, and wants to make you play more when you don’t. It also doesn’t require you to upgrade anything to continue playing, and I find that rather rare on the App Store! Thank you so much for this amazing and addicting game!
